Kuzushi Judo Club has been up and running since July 2010, due to its much larger mat area it has already outgrown its sister club at the PCYC. Charlie Laidlaw sensei and Cliff Illingworth sensei are able, when necessary, to split the class up into two groups of different learning abilities.
Woopi Warriors Judo Club have been practicing in Woolgoolga since April 2011with Cliff sensei teaching 5 to 95 year old students.
All three clubs follow the teachings of Dr Kano (the creator of judo).
The japanese writing at the top left side of this webpage says:
One of Dr. Jigoro Kano’s philosophies was the emphasis on the betterment of our society. While he emphasized bettering yourself, he also believed that one should use that new found development of self to then help others and to benefit society.
In Judo classes we practice this principle as well. In the beginning, others help you improve with advice and by letting you throw them so that you can get a feel for the techniques. As you progress, perhaps they help you by giving you a tougher workout. Later as you develop your judo, you will do the same for others like give advice, take falls and give your team-mates a tough workout.
